A big, fat hearty congratulations goes out to BASIS Tucson Charter School for being ranked the "Top Public High School" in the nation by Newsweek Magazine.
Basis Tucson was started 10 years ago by Olga & Michael Block, determined to create a model for the "New American School." Their dream was to combine the rigor and intensity of European and Asian college prep schools with the expansive curriculum and openness of the American-style classroom.
A decade later, the Block's vision has been rewarded by local, state and national attention numerous times. The Arizona Republic declared: "BASIS Charter Schools may offer the best free public education in the U.S." Kudos to the students, staff and administration for their vision, determination and success!
